We first introduced the Avec in response to customers who struggled with bulging books after collecting a year's worth of pasted material in the daily pages.
The Avec version splits the Japanese A5 Hobonichi Techo Cousin, design and all, into a 2-book set at six months each with only slight variances in calendar spans and the number of extra pages in the back. This allows you to fill the pages to your heart’s content with scheduling, diaries, little notes, tickets, photographs, doodles, and anything that strikes your fancy.
Avec book covers come in bright colors to encourage the option of using the book as-is. Book 1 (January–June) is a bright lime yellow and Book 2 (July–December) is a cool ice blue. And because it's lightweight, it's perfect for carrying around with you.
